The Southern California Antique Radio Society will hold a swap meet on 6/18/16 @ 7am in the parking lot of J.L. Fisher Inc., 1000 W. Isabel St., Burbank, CA 91506. We always have a good turnout for this meet... hope to see you there!

I got there last year at 7am, and it was already in full swing, making me feel like any good deals had already occurred.

What time do you suggest that I arrive next Saturday, to be in on it from the beginning...4am?

Although the official start time IS 7 am, some hardcore types may show up while it's still dark. In my experience, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of action before about 6 am, though.

Like most swap meets, it usually pays to get there early. Having said that, some of my best buys have been later in the morning. If they have one - and they usually do - sometimes deals pop up in the "donation auction" at the end of the meet (usually around 10 or 10:30).

I did hear that someone is bringing a number of sets (everything from common to high-end) from a collector's estate, so that should be interesting.

I'm not a member of SCARS. Will the guard let me in at 6am?

The location belongs to SCARS member Jimmy Fisher (a great guy), so the main gate - yes, there literally is one - is usually open very early. If someone is manning the gate they may ask you to park on the street if you're only there to buy, but non-members are always welcome. You must be a current member if you want to sell. A membership table should be available if you want to sign up, but it might not be set up yet if it's early in the morning.

Yes, but you can't sell until joining. It is only $20 yet year, ir $21 for a couple. Please find us, as we will be there for the board meeting, and probably sooner to sell some things.

I looked for you last year. How can I find you, or where will you be, or ?
Why not wear that shirt that you have on in your avatar?
